Typewriters 101 offers professionally cleaned, oiled, and serviced typewriters to anyone interested. Our selection of typewriters are all fairly priced, and you truly pay for what you get. While we do our best to tackle any mechanical problem or cosmetic flaw, we aren't equipped with the proper tools and equipment for every single type of repair. For these things we can't take care of, we never hide any flaws on any machine for sale. If there is something wrong, you'll always know before you buy - whether it is shown in the photos, or written up in the description.
Most typewriters available on eBay or at garage sales are cheaper, but you won't be able to use them right out of the box, and you will need to have skill as well as time to get them in reliable working condition. And if you have neither skill nor time, you will likely have to spend upwards of $150-$200 in order to get your machine professionally serviced, not including any possible repairs that could have been hidden in an eBay sale or emerged from improper packing for shipment.
In addition to serviced machines, we also sell typewriters that still need work and have not been cleaned. If you are looking for a fun project, or a parts machine, then we suggest browsing the "Parts/Repair/As Is" Typewriters for sale.
